As Haanel posits, and I have to begin with quoting this to get where I am going: “Hold in mind the condition desired; affirm it as an already existing fact. This indicated the value of a powerful affirmation. By constant repetition it becomes a part of ourselves. We are actually changing ourselves; are making ourselves what we want to be.”

“Character is not a thing of chance, but it is the result of continued effort. If you are timid, vacillating, self-conscious, or if you are over-anxious or harassed by thoughts of fear or impending danger, remember that is axiomatic that “tow things cannot exist in the same place at the same time.”

“Exactly the same thing is true in the mental and spiritual world; so that your remedy is plainly to substitute thoughts of courage, power, self-reliance and confidence, for those of fear, lack and limitation.” Part Nine

I felt really more pull-back than any lift and can only reduce it to lack proper execution of the mental diet. Haanel expounds that “the positive thought will destroy the negative as certainly as light destroys darkness;” exactly what the Word states:

IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD AND THE WORD WAS WITH GOD AND THE WORD WAS GOD HIMSELF. HE was present originally with God. All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him was not even one thing made that has come into being. In Him was LIFE and the Life was the LIGHT of men. And the Light shine son in the darkness, for the darkness has never overpowered it; never absorbed it or appropriated it and is un-receptive to it. John 1:1-5

Haanel further states that “all must admit that a sufficient supply at least is necessary, and what would be considered sufficient for one, would be considered absolute and painful lack for another; and as nature provides not only enough enough fur abundantly, wastefully, lavishly, we realize that any lack of limitation is only the limitation which has been made by an artificial method of distribution.”  In the realm of the spirit there is no blockage to The Blessing to flow other than the one we/i create through unforgiveness; lack of faith in The Blessing of Abraham stemming all the way to The Creator; worry and focus on the circumstances.

Thrust opposes drag. The engine creates thrust and moves the plane forward; in other words, Drag drags the plane down and I have been feeling like a drag myself recently. It takes enormous amounts of fuel and accurate heeding to the laws involved to get this plane off the ground and keep it moving. I have been bombarding my subconscious with recorded statements, DMPs and a lot more. I expect to lift through the ceiling and see desired results. It takes even more fuel to keep moving, according to the law of “by all means, keep on moving” if you are not a perpetuum mobile. The latter i studied in physics and am still perplexed about the forces needed to keep it moving, as it won’t naturally. I am naturally phlegmatic but can develop enormous energies and thrust when motivated, convicted and convinced.

  1. I so agree with your analogy about the aircraft requiring so much fuel to get off the ground, just as we do! I hadn’t thought about it that way and appreciate the perspective you have provided. I have felt dragged down lately, too. However, we will persist until we succeed!
